Australian University Sued for Censuring a Professor for Criticizing Alarmism over the Great Barrier Reef

February 2, 2018 Daily Caller 0

Australia: Professor Peter Ridd, a noted coral-reef expert, is suing his employer, James Cook University, for violating his academic freedom by censuring him for criticizing research hyping the ‘death’ of the Great Barrier Reef. Professor Ridd said that “the science is coming out not properly checked, tested, or replicated, and this is a great shame, because we really need to be able to trust our scientific institutions, and the fact is I do not think we can any more.” The University claims that Ridd’s comments denigrated the school’s reputation.
